With the new year 2021 approaching I´ve done some minor – nevertheless important – changes to NO FRILLS SAILING.com which will hopefully make it easier for you to consume my articles. Whilst overall theme and blog-system remains untouched
New boat on the blog: The First 27 SE
I´ve added my new boat, the Beneteau First 27 SE / Seascape 27 to the blog. Just like the page dedicated to my first boat, the King´s Cruiser 33 I´ve set up a page containing all information on the boat. I´ve started by writing about the First 27 SE in general, regarding boat data, technical specs and some details on technical equipment, comfort and set up. You´ll find this site by browsing to “My sailboats” and click on “First 27 SE”.
This site will naturally grow over time. Firstly I will add a section on the trailer and transporting-properties of this boat as soon as she is in my possession (which will be in approximately a 14 days time, mid-January 2021), I´ll then upgrade new pics of my particular boat and add every upgrade-project to the list at the end of this page. So, just as it is for the King´s Cruiser 33, I try to set up one page containing (or linking to) all relevant information on the boat itself – maybe it will be a valuable resource for future owners and people thinking of acquiring one.
Upgraded category menu
Speaking of “upgrade-projects” of my new boat, I decided to re-name the “Yacht Refit”-category. As the refit of my King´s Cruiser 33 has been halted this year in March and – at least for me personally – brought to an end, I will continue to write articles in this section of course but they cannot be considered a refitting a boat but upgrading. So this category is re-named “Yacht Upgrade & Refit”.
I´ve also changed the order of the subcategories which is in my opinion more coherent now and more logical to read them from A to Z. I would say, the last thing this website now needs is a good keyword-based internal search which I hope to have set up in the coming weeks. Small steps, indeed, but the sum of the details makes the whole. Let´s see, if I can set up a sailing-podcast in 2021 which would be one of the bigger projects of NO FRILLS SAILING.com but that´s still a long way off. For now, I am looking so much forward to receiving my new boat and starting to sail her. Have a great vacation between the years, dear readers.
